Join us on November 13, 2021, for an online retreat with Fr. Joshua Makoul, author of Healing Your Wounded Soul: Growing from Pain to Peace. It is hard to get through life without accumulating life experiences that leave a mark on us. If we move through our lives and those life experiences remain unresolved, they can resurface later and make our transition into later life stages more painful and difficult. Fr. Joshua will teach us about unpacking and healing from painful life experiences, and how this helps us make life-stage transitions more easily, peacefully, and joyfully. By embracing humility, insight, self-awareness, and no small amount of motivation, we can learn to navigate any life crisis.
